The world-class beers of Uthel are designed and brewed by brew-engineer Hildegard van Ostaden and the artwork anpackaging are creative masterpieces of het husband, Bas. Together they have become two of the most well-known of all Belgian brewers in the international World of Beer. Since autumn of 2006, all of Hildegard's beers have been produced, according to the authentic flemish brewing style, at Koningshoeven in Tilburg, Holland.
The gnome-ish figures on the label actually predate the beer itself. Bas had been working on a modern-day fairy-tale for some time when he and Hildegard decided to start brewing. Searching for a brand image was going nowhere, until Bas had the idea to combine his fairy-tale characters, The Erthels, with their new beer, Thus Urthel was born...
The beers of Urthel are different from others because of the numerous fairy-tales and Urthellegends which surround this original product.
